Celebrate Kiwanis Family Month in November

Each November, clubs are encouraged to celebrate Kiwanis Family Month by collaborating on service projects, fundraisers or advocacy efforts with other Kiwanis-sponsored clubs. The Kiwanis family is composed of K-Kids, Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K International and Aktion Club. Together, these are known as Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs (SLP), and are designed to prepare each participant to be the most engaged members of their communities.

This November, take some time to find out what these other clubs in your area are doing:

      Builders Club: middle school students (ages 11–14)

      Key Club: high school students (ages 14–18)

      Circle K: college and university students

      Aktion Club: adults (18 and older) who have a disability

      Kiwanis: over 600,000 adult members in more than 80 nations and         geographic areas

Encourage your club to reach out and set up a shared activity, fundraiser or service project. Here are a few ideas:

      Clean up a street or park.

      Hold a pancake breakfast or dinner to raise funds for a cause.

      Volunteer at a food bank—or collect, pack and deliver canned food.

      Volunteer at the local animal shelter.

      Create thank-you cards/gifts for law enforcement officers or firemen.

      Create care packages and write letters to military members.

      Make “no-sew” blankets to donate to a local shelter.

      Make knit caps for hospitalized kids getting chemotherapy                
      treatments.

And don’t forget to keep in touch with Kiwanis family members. You could invite Kiwanis club members to attend a K-Kids club meeting—or host an appreciation night for your sponsoring Kiwanis club. Maybe even write notes of encouragement to members of other youth clubs (and Aktion Club) in your area.

Let’s strengthen the Kiwanis family’s impact . . . and our bond. When you get together, it might even get to be a habit!
